Looking to Buy a House? 7,000 Open Houses June 4-5

As part of the Realtors’ Nationwide Open House weekend on June 4 and 5, you can go through thousands of homes looking for the perfect one!

Realtors and home sellers in approximately 75 cities in Washington will be involved in the two-day event.  And according to real estate professionals, this is a fantastic time to buy a home in Washington.  Houses are more affordable and interest rates are at an all-time low.

Just this past April, the Northwest Multiple Listing Service reported that the total housing inventory is 13 percent slimmer than it was a year ago. In the 21 counties served by the NMLS, there’s an interesting balance between supply and demand. The lower inventory, they say, is prompting multiple offers on attractive, well-priced properties.

Each open house will have a blue balloon out front with the trademark Realtor “R”. There will be more than 200,000 blue balloons flying in front of open houses across the country.
